The disruptive challenges we face today have never been so broad-reaching, so relentless and so disorienting. From digital transformation, to economic and health upheaval, to social and environmental change, the need for true leadership, in a new world, has never been more urgent.
Inspiring business leaders are in greater demand than ever, but a perceived leadership gap has been recognized in the industry. Addressing the gap in leadership requires development offerings targeting core competencies at every stage of the professional journey.
We need leaders who can embrace complexity and ambiguity. Who will tackle the unsolvable. But being a leader in these times also demands empathy, compassion and understanding. Leaders who can energize the change weary. Who can tap into the power of all. And empower the collective genius we need to succeed.
Our 3-day Organizational Leadership course will empower aspiring leaders to manage contemporary challenges, build and lead teams to sustainable success. Learn from the Swiss experience in a global context.
This certificate course counts towards the Diploma in Advanced Management.
